Sweeping ocean views and an acre of breathtakingly beautiful grounds define this rare Riviera estate.
The European Country estate (circa 1925) designed by celebrated architect Winsor Soule of Soule, Murphy and Hastings was the first residence constructed on Mira Vista and has remained in the care of the family it was built for over 90 years ago.
The residence rests on .54 acres and is adjacent to .46 acres of open lawn and manicured gardens. Though these two parcels currently function as a single, seamless property, they could easily be separated and host their own homes. Whether the adjoining .46 acres, with its own water meter, remains the venue of the exquisite formal rose garden and expansive lawns or evolves into a future development opportunity, the second parcel offers tremendous value to the estate.
The Riviera is known for offering some of the most coveted views in all of Santa Barbara. 1809 Mira Vista is no exception, however, what makes this property stand out are the lush, verdant gardens that unfold over two legal parcels. The grounds are a visual feast rich with roses, jasmine, lush lawns, meandering brick pathways, climbing vines, a babbling fountain and a beautiful brick fireplace.
